Some people have it all together.


Like the guy who robbed a Wells Fargo bank today near Power and Broadway roads in Mesa. He keeps organized with a zip-up black binder. Yep, that's his little, black revolver in there.

Mesa cops say the man pulled a note out of the binder and handed it to a teller, who gave him an undisclosed wad of cash.



The cash went into the binder and zip -- he was outta there.

But not before the bank's cameras took these decent photos of him. Cops further described him as a Hispanic or Native American man, about six feet tall and 150 pounds with acne scars on his face. The white jacket he was wearing said "Nautica" on the arm.

If you have any info, call Mesa police.
